Coaching – Treat Umpires With Respect

Fastpitch Softball Free Article on coaching and playing respect the umpires

Umpires and their calls are a part of softball and a part that we would all like to somehow make happen in our favor. While we can’t control umpire calls we can treat them with respect – and that goes a long way with anyone, umpires included. A roadmap for treating umpires includes; treat them with respect, when you approach them – approach them calmly, know the rules, when you talk to an umpire calmly ask your question, accept their answer, and then finally, move on. Still yelling at an umpire about a call they made 3 innings prior won’t help you at all.
